SIGN this petition to show your support for an equity officer position at the ABC Unified School District. 

Our community's recent activism and support of the Black Lives Matter movement has helped us garner the attention of both our city and school district officials. But it isn't enough to just gain attention, we need to hold our local institutions to their word, and encourage them to take action - especially for the children and students of color that face racial injustices within our very own schools.

Several school districts including LA Unified School District, Long Beach Unified School District, Los Alamitos School District, and Lynwood District have already established an Equity Inclusion and Diversity Department. The same is on the table for ABC Unified and we must show our support for it. A designated equity office and equity officer would promote great positive change throughout our schools by attending to fair and equitable distribution of resources, attending to equity complaints, diversifying education and curriculum for various grade levels, and ensuring fair representation of people of color in our school communities.

As we witnessed during our community’s protests, your voice is powerful and more than needed in breaking the vicious cycles of racism and injustice. So continue to fight the good fight against our systemic paradigm!! By signing this petition, sharing it with your circle, and submitting public comments about the need for an equity officer at future school board meetings, you contribute to the ongoing effort of promoting equity within ABC Unified School District.
